Alfredo Angulo Provides Update on His Eye Injury

Los Angeles, CA - "I want to thank all of my fans for their support in the wake of my eye injury this past weekend.  I have undergone various medical examinations which I am glad to report revealed no broken bones.  California State Athletic Commission physician Dr. Pearlman Hicks has informed me that I only suffered a contusion and my eye specialist thankfully sees no permanent injury to my eye.

I want to thank all of you for the love and support you have given me the past few days.  I would also like to congratulate Erislandy Lara on a great fight.  I'm sad that I disappointed all my fans by not giving them an "El Perro" victory as I truly believe I was on the verge of knocking Lara down for the third time and winning the fight.  The sharp pain of his thumb in my eye caused me to turn my back out of reflex and I could not see out of my left eye.  I accept the decision made by the referee to stop the fight and look forward to getting back in the ring in the future.  I will be back to give you a better show in my next fight."

Great news for Perro. Hope that he lets it heal fully and doesn't come back too soon. Maybe we'll get to see him on a big card in December or January.
